Life Check: A Human Journey by Harold David Whalen

My life was littered with harrowing and outrageous experiences. I was rescued from drowning twice. Stood face-to-face with a bear and pulled from under a dump truck before age six. My teens were equally risk-prone and my adult life not much better. Not all of the stories are tragic. Many are funny and some are amazing. I spent a summer hitchhiking the West Coast. I've no stranger to juvenile hall, jail or mental ward. I retired after thirty-four years of self-employment with numerous inventions and licenses.
